With so many preschool options available, many parents can be overwhelmed with the process of choosing a preschool for their child.

Confirmed schools attending include: Bay Presbyterian (Bay Village), Christ Lutheran (Avon Lake),Faith Lutheran (Avon), Fit by Five (Westlake), Goddard School (Avon),Holy Trinity(Avon), Jack-n-Jill (Avon Lake), Kiddie Kollege (Avon),Montessori Children’s School (Westlake), Pembroke Kids (Avon Lake), and Soaring Eagles(Avon).
Preschool Information Night is for parents of children not yet enrolled in preschool and/or those interested in changing their current school. The event is open to public.
“This event is great for parents of children who will be starting preschool soon, looking to switch preschools, or parents that want to get a head start on the preschool search,” said Becky House, AECPTA vice president of programming. “It is so convenient to ask questions and get information from a dozen preschools in one informal setting.Attendees can expect to find one or two representatives from each preschool with materials ranging from pamphlets and poster boards, to videos and PowerPoints. We want all parents to have access to this valuable information in one convenient location.”
In addition to Preschool Information Night, Avon Local Schools Superintendent Mike Laub will be the featured speaker at the meeting which begins at 7 p.m.AECPTA meetings are open to the public.
The Avon Early Childhood PTA is an organization that offers social and educational activities that enrich the lives of our members and their children. Members are given the opportunity to share time with their family while connecting with others in the community. The club is open to families with children birth to kindergarten in Avon and surrounding communities. Meetings are held the second Tuesday of the month (Sept. –May) at Avon Heritage North Elementary School (35575 Detroit Road). Free babysitting is available to members.
AECPTA also is an organization that gives back. Members collect monetary and needed consumer product donations for several local charities throughout the year. The club also donates a sizable percent of profits each year to charities and causes that promote and support family and child well-being and development. AECPTA recently presented the Avon Local School district with a $15,000 donation towards the construction of a new playground at Avon Middle School which will be converted into an Early Learning Campus for preschool and kindergarten students when the new middle school is constructedin Avon on Long Road.
